Start with energy. If you don't think energy runs the world, turn off all electricity while reading this.

Energy runs economics. The most useful energy is oil. There is a large reserve of easy-to-drill oil under Kirkuk, Iraq.

The world powers have been fighting through proxies to get control of that oil.

The US has no friends left on the ground in the region, and has made defacto alliance with every thug imaginable.

There is a small fake left, who represent no workers, who are largely correct about US crimes, but simply promote alternative bullies.
